All-Star Sports Resort

Disney’s All-Star Sports Resort is one of five Value Resorts located on Walt Disney World property. It also has two sister hotels located nearby: Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort and Disney’s All-Star Music Resort. Being a Value Resort, All-Star Sports is cheaper per night and doesn’t offer the same amenities as Moderate and Deluxe Resorts. But, it is still a popular resort, especially due to pricing.

Overview

All-Star Sports can be found in the Animal Kingdom Resort Area. For a Value Resort, it’s a decent size and has different buildings with two types of rooms available to book: Standard Rooms or Preferred Rooms.

The difference between Standard and Preferred rooms is the latter are located closer to the food court and transportation. This also means Preferred Rooms are higher in price.

Even though the rooms cost more due to location, they may be worth it for those who don’t want to walk far between their room and Stadium Hall, the main building where the lobby, food court, gift store, and transportation is located.

As for the buildings, they are inspired by different genres of sports. There is Surf’s Up!, Hoops Hotel, Center Court, Touchdown!, and Homerun Hotel.

There are even large-sized, sports-inspired icons outside of each building. If you wanted some great photos, these make for really cool photo-ops.

Here’s everything you need to know about All-Star Sports.

Rooms And Bathrooms

There are two types of rooms to book at All-Star Sports. You can either make reservations for a Standard Room or a Preferred Room. The rooms can sleep up to four adults, total.

They are both similar in style, but the difference is, as mentioned above, Preferred Rooms cost more and are located closer to the food court and transportation.

The standard amenities are included in the rooms, including a hairdryer, TV, free WiFi, a coffee maker, telephone, in-room safe, and an iron and ironing board.

There are rooms that have been refurbished with plenty of outlets and USB ports.

The newly refurbished rooms have beds with space underneath for luggage, along with drawers, cubbies, and an open closet for other personal items. The remodeled bathrooms also have a lot of counter space and storage, as well. 

Rooms that have yet to be refurbished are out-of-date, don’t have storage underneath the beds, and less storage.

Take note that some of the rooms also have a pull-down bed. You can remove the chairs from the table and pull down on the silver handles for access to another bed.

Here are the rooms you can book (the photos featured are of rooms prior to refurbishment):

  • Standard Room: Views of the Courtyard, Pool or Parking Area; 2 Double Beds
  • Preferred Room: Views of the Courtyard, Pool or Parking Area; Close to Stadium Hall, Dining, Shopping and Transportation; 2 Double Beds

When it comes to checking in and out, you have a few options: at the front desk, online through the official Walt Disney World website, or via the My Disney Experience app.

The front desk is located in the main lobby. Even though the front desk is there to assist guests, especially with checking in and checking out, all Disney World Resort guests are encouraged to check-in online or by using MDE.

The lobby is located in Stadium Hall, which is the main building. Stadium Hall also houses End Zone Food Court, the arcade, and the gift store. Bus transportation is also located right outside.

The pickup and dropoff location for Mears Connect (which is the replacement for Magical Express) is also outside the lobby. Luggage storage is right out front of the lobby for those who have checked out or are waiting to check in.
